qbs does not use the current environment to build a project.
It uses its own build environment. The up-side is that you do not have 
to build your projects in the right shell. Especially on Windows is this 
useful where you usually use separate shells for MSVC Win32 and MSVC 
x64. Same goes for Qt versions: you don't have to fiddle around with the 
environment to build with a different Qt version.
The down-side is that you have to register your Qt version somewhere.

See Stéphane's mail. :)
